MBA Change and Innovation
Created in 2000 and accredited by the AMBA in 2004, the Change & Innovation MBA program offers a one-year, full-time programme delivered entirely in English.
The MBA Change & Innovation approaches management complexity by preparing managers to integrate opposing dimensions: local and international, short-term and long-term, cooperation and competition, shareholder value and stakeholder value, practical tools and critical thinking. Albeit these management intricacies, the IAE Aix en Provence provides strategic understanding and tools to analyse, channel, implement and drive innovation within any type of organisation.
The core of the program is devoted to specific management skills and knowledge. Specialising in Change Management, the core develops the participant’s capacity for understanding and dealing with organisational processes in the constantly-metamorphosing business world. This professional track provides foundational tools needed for leadership effectiveness in a variety of roles, including international management positions, starting a business or entering the field of consulting.
Companies constantly undergo transformations such as a reorganisation following mergers or acquisitions, organisation reengineering, industry deregulation, refocusing of organisational direction, or the privatisation of public companies. The MBA Change & Innovation program prepares managers to initiate, lead, and effectively actualise organisational transformation.
